Album Review
Tom McCarter
Reviewed 2018-08-02 
Genre: General
FCCs: none
Review: a wonderful collection of ballads co-written by jazz guitarist Sprague & poet Phillips. Sprague employs several different musicians & vocalists for each track, looking for just the right combination to convey the message. Songs alternate between male & female vocals
If You Like: Linda Perhacs. William Ackerman, early Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens
